Today we are covering Jessica Yu’s 2004 documentary In the Realms of the Unreal. 

There are many reasons that this case entranced the world, but it may be what Knox says herself: “Either I’m a psychopath in sheep’s clothing or I am YOU.”

George spoke with Eric Steuer about one of his favorite docs, EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP (2010). The only film credited to Banksy, Exit Through The Gift Shop tells the story of Thierry Guetta, a self-taught street artist/documentarian who ends up becoming the subject of the film.

We are thrilled to have as our guest journalist, activist and comedian Francesca Fiorentini as we recap Michael Moore’s latest documentary Fahrenheit 11/9. Francesca is known famously for her work on AJ+ Newbroke. As with most Sup Doc episodes we have differences, lot of laughs, in-depth moments, no real conclusions and we get schooled in “postcolonial feminist theory”!

Paco Romane and George Chen recap CENTRAL PARK FIVE with Kaseem Bentley and Lauren Stanton. We get into Trump, false accusations, and American injustice. Recorded at The Comedy Store LA

Legendary comedian Wayne Federman RETURNS to Sup Doc to talk about the HBO doc The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling. Not only was Wayne a co-producer on this doc he was a good friend of Garry’s and shared a lot about the making of this film and reflected on their long friendship.

On this episode of Sup Doc Paco sits down with writer Adam Mansbach who wrote the biopic Barry currently available on Netflix. Barry is set in the year 1981 and focuses on the future president Barack Obama as he struggles to figure out his identity as he moves between various different communities and social circles while attending Columbia University. We also talk about race and identity, why he wrote his best-seller Go The Fuck To Sleep, working with Alan Zweibel, and his method and inspiration to write Barry.
